Blizzard has given World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth a 100 per cent increase in experience point gains.
As announced on the game's website, the new buff is called 'Winds of Wisdom', and it is in effect until April 20th 2020. Blizzard has released the experience boost as a way of encouraging its player base to stay inside during the coronavirus outbreak.
"If you're staying inside and find yourself returning to Azeroth, or if you're levelling another character (or two), you'll be getting a special bonus to help you on your way," said Blizzard.
"Beginning today through April 20th, 2020 all players in Battle for Azeroth will gain an experience buff called 'Winds of Wisdom' which will increase experience gains by 100 per cent. This includes Starter Edition and Legion players as well.
"Players will also be able to take advantage of this experience boost while still using their favourite heirlooms. It won't take long before you'll be facing off with the Old God N'Zoth and his minions in Ny'alotha, the Waking City."
Last month, it was revealed that World of Warcraft subscriptions have doubled since the Classic version was released in August 2019. In October 2019, the American company claimed that World of Warcraft Classic had exceeded its expectations.
